2018 Meeting / Event Schedule

Meetings are generally a mix of formal club business (approval of minutes, update on our finances, upcoming events, and an open agenda item for new business) and demonstrations or presentations. The demos and presentations are varied and range from videos from our past flying seasons or how-to demos on how to cover a wing, work with foam, build a battery pack, maintain a glow engine etc. Occasionally, we have a guest speaker come in to discuss some topic related to aviation. Visitors are always welcome so if you're thinking about getting into this hobby and would like to learn more about what it's all about, come join us at our next meeting.  

All meetings are held at the College of the North Atlantic on Prince Philip Drive, usually in room C-101

Fun Fly Schedule Begins

Anytime there are model planes in the air, you can be sure that somebody is having fun... nevertheless, the club runs several Fun Fly events during the year, which always seem to attract a few extra folks to the field to take in the smell of burning fuel, eat a few hot dogs and have a cup of tea. The usual registration fee is $5.00, for which you get lunch and a chance at some prizes drawn at the field.

As the St. John's R/C Flyers is a MAAC chartered club, PROOF OF MAAC COVERAGE IS REQUIRED to operate at our field and events. Keep our flying sites clean! Take your garbage with you when you leave.
